In March 2003, the Philadelphia Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against Hora, Inc., doing business as Days Inn, and Marshall Management, Inc., the company contracting to manage the facility, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania alleging discrimination on the basis of sex, female, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the complaint alleged that the defendants subjected the complaining party to a sexually hostile work environment and terminated her in retaliation for complaining about her treatment. Following some discovery and a settlement conference, the parties settled the lawsuit in December 2005 prior to a decision on defendant's motion for summary judgment.

A Consent Decree was entered in this case on December 8th, 2005. This Decree required the Defendant to: pay the charging party $12,000, expunge the charging party's employment record, keep the charging party's involvement in this suit confidential from potential employers, post notice of EEO rights, and provide training to its managers, superivors, owners, and Human Resource personnel. This Consent Decree further requires the Defendant to refrain from discrimination or retaliation, and is in effect for two years.
